Telltale president Bruner becomes CEO

Former CEO Dan Connors stays on as executive advisor

Telltale, home of The Walking Dead and Game Of Thrones, has announced that its president and co-founder Kevin Bruner is changing roles and becoming CEO of the company.

Former CEO Dan Connors is sticking around and will take a new role as executive advisor.

"2014 marked our tenth consecutive year of continued growth since co-founding Telltale with Kevin Bruner in 2004. In that time, we've been incredibly proud to have accomplished so much with some of the most talented people in entertainment," said Connors.

"2015 is the first of the next ten years for an ever-evolving Telltale. As we enter this new phase, and as Kevin transitions to my former role of CEO, I will remain with the company and on the board in an advisory role that will help ensure Telltale's vision of continuing to break new ground as leading storytellers in the entertainment space."

Bruner and Connors founded the company back in 2004 with Troy Molander. In that time it has worked with some of the biggest cult IPs available from Monkey Island to Back To The Future. It's currently at work on a Minecraft spin-off, Minecraft: Story Mode.

New CEO Bruner explained the changes within the company.

"Each year since Telltale's 2004 birth has been more exciting than the last, and 2015 will be no exception," he said.

"We're thrilled to continue our growth and bring our unique style of scripted entertainment to the next generation of digital media, and do that across thousands of different devices. Our top priority is to continue fostering an environment where the most talented and creative storytellers in the industry are working side by side with the world's biggest creative partners. We're already working on some of the biggest franchises in entertainment, and when you add our unannounced partnerships and upcoming original IP, it's clear the most exciting time to be at Telltale is now, and there will continue to be more and more opportunity to innovate ahead of us."
